Dr. Hydrocodon

Oh how the pages on my calender
Seem to melt into the floor boards
And my shoes seem to have new-old soles
And the world seems to be an old racist cartoon
And I’m walking down the streets in Baltimore
With a spring in my step
Skipping over puddles and swinging an umbrella over my head
Singing show tunes
Putting up posters to ad
Handing out circulars to spread
And magnify the new right wing
Back from the war
With badges and flags
With bodies in bags
Shouting, “We won it again!”
Begging whoever left me here to come back over
on a passenger plane
And to take me back to Chicago
Because this drink is toxic
That we share over shoulders
Shouting our vows in the key of C
Before we exchange porcelain grins
Give me another shot of that
Another hit of this
Shut your eyes and pretend
I’m Dr. Fantasy
And make your appointments on your calender
But don’t slip on them as they’ve melted into the floor
the pages on my calender
Dr. Fantasy
the floor boards
Dr. Forget Me
the streets in Baltimore
Dr. Taxidermy
spring in my step
Dr. Stranger
an umbrella over my head
Dr. Smoke Rings
posters to ad
Dr. 14 Karats
circulars to spread
Dr. Next-King
the new right wing
Dr. Take me back
Back from the war
With badges and flags
With bodies in bags
Dr. Hydrocodon
You don’t need to take my word for it
You see it on every black and white channel
On ever black and white page
Every drop from the rain is a stain
That I would like to disappear into
You say you’re not listening
But I said, I’m wishing

Dr. Hydrocodon

Artist's Description

Call me Ms. Eunice
And don’t let the doctor in
I don’t want him to see me like this
